It has been rumored and confirmed that a movie, specifically a trilogy, AND a tv series adapted from The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Originally they were talking about the creators of Lost being involved with the adaptation and production (Abrams, Lindeloff, and Cuse) which I thought would be just about perfect. Unfortunately, that deal has fallen through since, apparently, the Lost creators felt that “they wouldn’t do the series justice.”
Enter Ron Howard. Ron Howard has now been fingered for the job of directing this epic undertaking.
